Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In late 1950s London, something uncanny besets a group of elderly friends: an insinuating voice on the telephone informs each, "" Their geriatric feathers are soon thoroughly ruffled by these seemingly supernatural phone calls, and in the resulting flurry many old secrets are dusted off. Beneath the once decorous surface of their lives, unsavories like blackmail and adultery are now to be glimpsed. As spooky as it is witty, poignant and wickedly hilarious, may ostensibly concern death, but it is a book which leaves one relishing life all the more.

Synopsis:

Unforgettably astounding and a joy to read, is considered by many to be the greatest novel by the wizardly Dame Muriel Spark.
